Revision guides have been produced to provide specific, directed help to parents and students. The guides cover the examinations, both internal and external, that students take during the course of their HeadStart educational journey. Although exam dates and events are mapped out and announced at the beginning of the year, they are subject to change. Parents are advised not to take their children out of school before the term ends.
On the 13th of November, students begin to revise for the upcoming exams. Preparation begins with revision in class using past papers. Students should also begin to revise at home. This will culminate in exam week which starts on the 20th of November. The results will be reported back to parents at the end of term 1 through the reports and the parent conferences which take place in December.
